Tuesdays are big in entertainment-ville: Not only do all the new DVD releases hit Netflix, but new music also pours into stores, including iTunes.
Tuesdays are big in entertainment-ville: Not only do all the new DVD releases hit Netflix, but new music also pours into stores, including iTunes. So I take a spin through each week's iTunes music releases and pick out some albums and tracks worthy of a download. Here are today's selections:
The story teller: Here's an interesting fact about singer-songwriter Mason Jennings: he recorded two Bob Dylan songs for the movie I'm Not There that were lip-synched by Christian Bale. He's known for simple lyrics and down home pop-folk melodies and if you ever wondered what smooshing Beck's voice with Ryan Adams melodies would be like, well I think this is what you'd get. His new album is palatable for a broad audience. My favorite tracks include Going Back to New Orleans and I Love You and Budda Too.
The Hills are alive with these guys' music: Odds are, when Heidi is making sad-eyes out of an airplane window or LC and Lo are staring blankly at each other after Audrina leaves the room, a Carolina Liar song is playing. This kind of poppy rock isn't usually my cup of tea, but songs like Beautiful World (featured on The Hills) off of their new album are alright. Many of you enjoyed their track I'm Not Over, which can currently be heard in the Ashton Kutcher-Cameron Diaz comedy What Happens in Vegas.
